I have been vacationing. I found out about MOOC's (Massive Open Online Course) and signed up for four college courses in areas where I had never studied. The first one was "Introduction to Psychology" and it's over now. I know I did well on all three tests, but don't know the final score yet. Also, my youngest brother (8 years younger) died recently, and that took two weeks and a lot of energy out of my life. And I have had a series of health issues, some of which were false alarms, and a couple of which are still a mystery. What can I say - I was lazy and dropped out for awhile.
A couple of days ago our TV quit working right - no closed captions, menu, mute indication (even though it was muted) but still good sound and video. After three days I figured it was really old, and bought a new TV yesterday. Then last night the old one started working right again. Fortunately, the new one was too big to put in a car, so I rushed back to Costco this morning and stopped the delivery - and also got my money back.
Now I need to mow the grass again, but from now on it will take three days instead of one. I wound up with a syncopated pulse after the last time, and still have it, so no more pushing hard in the heat.
